Although they never won the Stanley Cup, the Tampa Bay Lightning put together an impressive four-season run as any NHL club between the 2014-15 and 2017-18 seasons. Three times in that four-year span, the Lightning played in the Eastern Conference final. In 2014-15, they went all the way to the Stanley Cup final before falling to the Chicago Blackhawks.
With a sensational young nucleus, the Lightning figure to be one of the NHL’s top teams for years to come and will always be a stellar choice in any Stanley Cup future wager. Up front, captain Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov are as dynamic a duo as there is skating in the league. Norris Trophy winner Victor Hedman leads a deep and solid defensive corps. Between the pipes, Andrei Vasilevskiy provides Vezina-worthy netminding.
A previous group of talented Lightning led by Vincent Lecavalier and Brad Richards led the Lightning to Stanley Cup glory in 2003-04. Tampa Bay lost its way for a number of seasons not long after than success story was written, but the Lightning rebuilt from the bottom and are now the envy of the NHL.

But oddly enough, Tampa Bay is a much more successful over wager on the road and a very reliable under presence on home ice.
